Tobey 'discovered' our lounge laptop a few weeks back, and has been fascinated with it ever since.

He sits there and mashes the keys like rhino playing piano. Sometimes the lappy goes mental and makes noise (like keystroke buffers full etc), and that just eggs him on further!!

Geek notes for those photos:

First one has a software retail package and Okta Touch retail box on the fireplace.

Second shows a power strip where all the portable Geek stuff gets powered in our lounge (work tablet, work laptop, home laptop etc)

Sometimes when I visit peoples houses and the only technology they have is a cordless phone, a tube tv and a vcr, I dont know whether to laugh, or die a little on the inside, in their memory...

By the time you are big enough, you will be far to old to do anything about it!

Now that is a cute wee lad, does he come with his own software?
When you get around to selling your laptop, do the minute teeth marks count towards discount?  =P

When one of my boys was about three years old, he decided that my company laptop (steam driven Tosh - it was the nineties) needed a little drink from my cup of tea. One keyboard and hard drive later - the IT boys were well pissed off!

This was the same kid who used to feed the video recorder toast and, along with his brother, made a bomb in his bedroom with washing detergent, vinegar, sugar and coffee grounds.

and people wonder why I'm going grey (arctic blonde).
